Open Access Policy

 

The editors decided that it is time to try new ways of publishing. Most of the established scholarly journals are connected to any of the large enterprises making money with distribution ideas funded mostly by taxpayers. Subscription fees became prohibitive in some branches of scholarship and even in the social sciences the free floating of ideas is hindered by rising prices for subscription.

Serendipities is therefore an open access journal free to of charge to everyone with access to the internet. All articles and contributions are published under an CC BY-NC-ND licence.

Serendipities will provide annual reports on the number of submissions, rejection rate etc. on its website. From time to time a list of external reviewers will be made public too, most probably not annually to avoid identification of reviewers by rejected authors.
